Good record Duncan, agree re scarcity of Scarlet Robins at moment.  We did not record Scarlet Robin in Mulligans Flat on the blitz yesterday, its one of the strongholds for this species.


However, we did record a Hooded Robin in Mulligans, a species Ive not recorded personally there for years.  (In recent years, there has been occasional record of HR in northern Mulligans/NSW border area reported by others).  


Mulligans Flat dams are drying up, the large dam is probably the lowest we have seen, and there were no waterbirds there.

Scarlet Robins are few and far between in the woodlands at the moment, so it was good to find a pair today that had successfully bred.


They were on the northern border (Centenary Trail), directly north of the yet to be suburb of Taylor.
